The Nigerian authorities are in search of 1,800 prisoners who were involved in the escape. The authorities have been blamed for this jailbreak. All the citizens are saying is not well in the southeast of Nigeria.

Declining in the security of Nigeria has led to this. Kidnapping in Nigeria has become rife and the army is failing to take necessary actions against these kidnapping cases.

On Monday morning , armed men with highly powered weapons arrived in Owerri , in the southeastern Imo state.
